Great room!

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a great deal on the Captain's suite for this cruise. Loved it! I may never go back to an interior cabin again! We experienced a few problems with some broken things in the room, but they were taken care of right away. The food choices were very good. We especially liked the Italian restaurant (extra $) for dinner. We've had the steakhouse before and loved that also. You really didn't have to spend money to eat, though. The marketplace had plenty to choose from. As far as the ship itself goes, we were disappointed in the layout. Talking with other guests, they also found it to be confusing trying to get to the dining rooms, and having to go through a smoky casino wasn't very pleasant.The room stewards, wait staff and cruise directors were wonderful! Jaime's Veteran's service was a great tribute. Our biggest complaint would be the music in the liquid lounge and the piano bar was way too loud! Maybe that's our age showing, but although the music was good, it took away from it, and we found we had to leave. Overall, a good experience.
